Earlier this week I managed to finish up my Pretty Patchwork quilt! I wasn't able to get photos sooner partly due to the weather. Kaaren over at The Painted Quilt called her version 'Stopped Me in My Tracks'. It certainly caught my eye! Kaaren made hers a bit bigger and in yellow and white. She generously offered the pattern free on her blog. Head over here to see her version!
I had this pretty blue print in my stash not knowing what to make until I saw this pattern. It is a very soft muted blue with little yellow flowers.
I straight line quilted a crosshatch pattern through the 49 square patch and in the 9 patch cornerstone units. I FMQ a braided rope pattern in the sashings.
The backing is a striped blue, green, and yellow striped print from my stash.
The binding is a soft yellow and white stripe. Also from my stash!
It feels good to make a quilt completely from my old stash with the
exception of the Kona white background fabric, a staple in my stash.
The quilt size is 53" x 69"
Before September is over, I needed to work on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge block. This month's color is rosy reds.
Here are all the blocks that I have finished so far.
Only 1 month left! What color will it be?
Head over to SoScrappy to see what others have been working on this month.
I finally got fabric and cut it for the Mod Bear Paw QAL. I'm a bit behind but hopefully will have some time to catch up. I now have a deadline for this quilt.
Check it out over at Sew Fresh Quilts!
That's all folks!
